I needn't have worried. He loved kindergarten and everything about it.
As I read many of your blogs this week, as you prepare to send your children off to school, I must admit that I have this feeling inside that I can't quite place. It's not sadness or guilt that we're not sending him to school this year. It's just....different. I'll openly admit that I have all kinds of things running through my head and heart this week. Of course I have doubts! I know this is normal. The truth is, many of my questions won't have answers until we've really put this year to the test and seen the actual outcome.
All I have to go on is trust in a God that led us here. And for now, that's going to have to be enough.
Our school year has begun and week one went great. Everyone did well, including Caden (this is a huge praise), and today is Friday, which means we're off. (Fridays are reserved for lots of fun field trips and the practical (necessary) errands. I know I will need a day to catch up!)
The kids in our neighborhood are preparing to go off to school and Jerry has started back with meetings. The fall is winding up with all kinds of new things just waiting to be discovered.
And just like last year, my daily prayers will be frequent and ongoing, for I know I cannot possibly do this without Him.
And just like last year, no one is more excited than me to see the year unfold.
And, just like last year, only in a different way, I will still place all my worries in the Lord's hands and trust him for the well-being of my kids.
The only real difference is that I won't be walking him to the bus.
And you can trust me on this one: I won't miss that part at all. ; )
